This no-mintmark 1891 Morgan silver dollar of the principal Philadelphia mint had an output only about half that of the 1890 Philadelphia issue. And today as few as 230,000, just 3% of its modest production, may survive in mint-state quality. That puts added pressure on circulated grades like the Very Fine quality we offer here. The year 1891 saw the founding of the American Numismatic Association, the opening of Carnegie Hall, the invention of basketball and Thomas Edison's patent for a motion-picture camera. Very Fine quality.
